In a case where an Offeror submits its past performance proposal that contains both Offeror references and major subcontractor references, is the past performance team allowed to only evaluate and report on the Offeror references (even though the Government instructed (Section L) the Offeror that they can submit Joint Venture, Partners, and major subcontractor references; and that the Government will evaluate (Section M) them)?
This response is based on the information provided. We suggest you discuss with your contracting officer and Source Selection Authority as appropriate.
Open full Question Details
The government is not limited to reviewing only Past Performance information provided by the offeror. The Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) holds up to three years of Contractor Performance Assessment Reports (CPARs). If your team is aware of contract-program performance not listed in the offeror submission or in the CPAR, you are allowed to contact people with pertinent information. If the joint venture (JV) is going to be part the performance then information about its performance is relevant. The same is true of partners and major subcontractors.
